Shincha, meaning "new tea," is the first harvest of sencha. In Japan, it's said that if you drink Shincha on the 88th Day after the Spring equinox, you will stay healthy all year. Because of its popularity in Japan, Shincha often sells out quickly and is hard to get abroad. This tea is prized for its aromatic flavors, amino acid content, as well as its vegetal brew that only contains a light bitterness.
